INTERVIEW: HK man travels world by his wits

By Loa Iok-sin  /  Staff reporter

In Taitung City, a bicycle shop repaired his bicycle, but would not take any money, since the storekeeper said that he had “done nothing but made some adjustments.”

In Keelung, when having lunch, a man sitting at the same table as Fai asked where he came from, and left before Fai did.

“When I finished lunch and asked for the bill, the restaurant owner told me that the man at my table already paid for my meal,” he said. “It was such encounters that made up the best memories of my trips, and motivate me to go on.”

Having been helped by many people around the world, Fai decided to give his own contribution to those in need as well — next month, he will begin a cycling trip from Hong Kong to Europe, and collect donations for the charity organization Oxfam along the way.

“By sharing my story, I would like to tell everyone that, if someone like me can travel the world, anybody can make their dream come true,” Fai said. “Don’t worry, don’t be afraid, just take the first step and you can do it.”
